DAWN’s ORIGAMI BOX

OK By now you should know that I love all things ORIGAMI…and while you may think that I am whiz at it….( HA …GOT YA FOOLED) I AM NOT…but I still like the challenge I guess in any case this little box is not that hard and Dawn does her usual good job of showing you  just how to fold it so …Put on your big girl britches…and give it a try….

Dawn’s Origami box for all occasions..

This is not a big box as you can tell by the top that is only a bout 3 ”  and about an inch and ½ deep but it would make a gift box if you were putting money in it or even a check…it won’t fit gift card ..just so you know…. and it will be sturdier if you can manage to fold a light weight card stock….she is using really light weight duplex paper and while that will be easiest to fold its also fragile… sometimes this is a good time to go looking for some  paper like CANSON at Michaels its sorta a medium weight but it is only solid color sometimes you just need to go looking thru your paper stash and see if you  have some gift wrap that is heavier or art paper in an art store…If you are near Bellevue WA there is a PAPER SOURCE store there that has so many different types of paper you can’t believe it a lot of it in PARENT SHEETS ( Usually around 19 x 25 “).  If you are near BELLINGHAM WA…the STAMPADOODLE has parent sheets of paper and I am not sure but I think that IMPRESS RUBBER STAMPS in TUKWILIA WA..also carries some parent sheets paper but they also have lots of duplex paper…. HINT: If you decide to fold this with heavier paper/cardstock…I recommend that you fold it first with a piece of lightweight paper so you get the folds down before you try with the heavier paper…

HINT: 2 Be sure you crease your score lines really well with a bone folder of some type as this box looks best if it has nice sharp corners…

So here is the link to Dawn’s video and remember you can fold and stop it where you need to when you are watching…

I have a granddaughter that is graduating with her Masters and a grandson that is turning 23 a day apart so I going to make two of these… His is going to be a STAR WAR’S theme and I will just put $$ in it with a note that says just to help the FORCE….and her’s I am not sure what to say in yet ….as she has not decided what she wants…. I will probably just include a small heart card that says write your wish and send it to gramma…lol…I hope to get them both made and include a photo here before this posts…lol
